Work in Progress Wednesday 169

Hi everyone. I hope you had a great weekend and start to your week. We had a great time at Disneyland and I even finished my Hogwarts Express shawl in time to wear it for (un)official Harry Potter day at Disneyland.

 I had such a great time making the Hogwarts Express shawl, that I've already started a second one. This will be a Christmas gift for a friend. I really hope she likes it! She's always interested in my knitting and Candy Skein and I thought she would be someone who would really appreciate something hand knit. I'm using the Candy Skein November monthly colorway, Mulled Wine, which is a deep, rustic red with great tonal variation. She wears a lot of neutrals so I thought this would give her a good pop of color.

NOTE: For some reason Blogger is changing the color within my picture. Click here for the flickr image to get a more accurate idea of the color which is MUCH darker than the picture is showing with a lot more tone.

That's it for me today! I hope you have a great rest of your day and week.
